My multi-PDF at this address:

http://archive.org/details/RecordResearchMagazine

Seems to be stuck at the derive task. Item history says it's waiting for an admin, but it has been 8 days now. I'm beginning to think it's stuck.

Also, the individual files only show "PDF" as a name. I'd like to change this to represent the issue number of the magazine.

Any help would be appreciated!

you cannot change the "PDF". what you should be doing is uploading each issue as a separate item with unique metadata pertaining to that issue so that it is searchable and findable. when you have created at least 50 item pages you can request a collection for your items at info@archive.org.

at the moment your item is on a server that is offline so the derive cannot proceed and there seems to be a conflicting issue with there being different resolutions for different pdfs in the item.

You will have to contact info@archive.org to have them fix the derive task. As far as changing the file name, ask them, but it may have to be uploaded again.
